1 Place the potatoes on to boil in cold water with a sprinkling of salt.

2 Bring to the boil and allow to simmer for 10 minutes.

3 Once they start to go soft, drain well, leave to drain very well and then mash. Once mashed place into a bowl.

4 Add to this the grated carrot, the shredded cabbage, celery salt, parsley, chervil and seasoning and mix together.

5 Roll into the palm of your hand forming a nice shape and place in a shallow non stick pan to fry golden brown all the way round for approximately 4-5 minutes. Once golden brown and crispy take out of the pan, place onto an oven tray and bake in the oven for approximately 8 minutes until cooked and hot all the way through.

6 Whilst they are cooking, take the sausages and pan fry them in the same pan, golden brown, turning all the time. Once the sausages are golden brown all the way round, again take them out of the pan and place them into the oven on the same tray with the bubble and squeak to cook through.

7 Once the bubble and squeak are cooking, then add the finely shredded sliced red onions into a pan and let them sweat for 4-5 minutes until they go lovely and golden and caramelised.

8 Add to this the port and redcurrant jelly, a little bit of seasoning and possibly a touch of Demerara sugar or honey and let that go to an onion marmalade.

9 Take the bubble and squeak out of the oven onto a plate, place the sausage and onion marmalade on top and decorate with a little bit of fresh parsley.
